Your daily reminder: that 100% free sci-fi/fantasy anthology I'm in has a super-nifty cover.

This is the story of that cover.

Don't forget to pick up a free e-copy, read it from cover to cover, maybe fall in love with a new indie author or two, so we can all get insanely rich and keep writing.
 
Curious about the design process for the recent book cover? The tools used? This was a particularly challenging design brief, so I thought other authors might like a peek at the details.
Designing book covers is an exercise in optimization. There are so many different needs to be served, and they can sometimes be in opposition to each other.

We've been kinda dominating the "free sci-fi anthology" and "free fantasy anthology" since its release. Small pond, but it's fun to feel like a big fish.

Twelve hour countdown: the ImmerseOrDie storybundle is going away... FOREVER! This is your last chance to pick up The Vampire of Northanger + 8 other indie sci-fi fantasy books for the low low price of [KINDA SORTA PAY WHAT YOU WANT SOME RESTRICTIONS APPLY].

http://storybundle.com/indie

Among the pile: authors I've come to know and love, books I've started into that show great promise, and a hapless heroine trying to escape a holiday in Bath undevoured.

Canadian author Jefferson Smith has been doing the dirty work of sifting through the muck of the self-publishing world, bagging and tagging the best. I feel like I'm in exceptional company.

What do you get when you ask 34 of today's top indie authors to each submit a story and then ask a team of judges to scour that ore and pick out the gems?

Well, for one thing, you get All These Shiny Worlds.

And for another, you get it for free.

Winner winner fear for dinner.  I'm looking forward to reading this.
 
Something dark and delectable just in time for the season of blood and pumpkins.
Let the strumpets cry out as another contender crosses the line with arms raised!

A dog with a giraffe's head eats from a bucket.  The harbor seal grows spindly ventral flippers and casts itself onto land.  The hummingbird drinks from the snail's abandoned shell.

The end is nigh.  Repent.

Having a snafu with Amazon. We're trying to make the price "free", but it keeps getting jacked up to 99c. Go home Amazon algorithms. You're drunk.

But even at 99c, you're picking up a bunch of great stories. Why not give it a read?

Woo hoo! All These Shiny Worlds is #1 on Amazon in free sci-fi anthologies and #2 in fantasy. If you've already got yours, thank you immensely.

And if you haven't, was it a price problem? Some people have reported that it's not yet showing as free. Amazon tells me that you should just clear the caches and cookies in your browser and refresh the page. Then, voila! You too can enjoy the awesome goodness.

The Vampire of Northanger faces off against the Treadmill of Judgment. The real winner is Jane Austen lovers everywhere!
 
Today we see an example of a stylistic homage paid in brilliant coin. Jane Austen’s long-lost vampire novel.

"_Strictly Analog_ really worked for me. The gritty, corporate dystopia had a bit of a Snowcrash feel to it, and the world is painted in stark, black strokes. From the Midwest dotted with slave labor factories that build goods for a wealthy China, to decaying libraries that double as homeless shelters, this is a scary, dangerous world."--+Bryce Anderson, Banned Sorcery Book Reviews

Strictly Analog is on sale for just 99 cents for a few more days. Grab it at this price while you can.

I repeat: Google is the worst trip-sitter ever.

Me: "Hey Google, I'm freaking out."

Google: "Oh, okay.  Well, relax and look at this."

Me: [[ goes into screaming coma ]]

Hallucinogens and computers are a bad mix. Ditto cell phones.
